Clare Daly and Barry Andrews have taken the final two European Parliament seats for Dublin.
It came after outgoing Sinn Féin MEP Lynn Boylan was the last candidate eliminated in the count.
Her votes were redistributed, putting Independents4Change candidate Clare Daly into third position and on her way to Brussels.
Earlier, Daly had finally overtaken Fianna Fáil's Barry Andrews - who will take the new fourth and final Dublin seat in the European Parliament.
However, this will be a so-called "cold-storage" seat - meaning he can only take up the seat if and when the UK leaves the EU.
And there we have it! After 3 days of counting Dublin’s final 2 MEP seats decided. Clare Daly takes 3rd seat. Barry Andrews takes the 4th “cold storage” seat. Daly announcement just happened. Andrews due shortly. pic.twitter.com/cv8Ssxh9M0

The count was dramatically suspended last night after legal teams for both candidates had raised concerns over whether Boylan's votes would be transferred - under the expectation that the transfers would ultimately decide the order in which the two remaining candidates were elected.
After discussions between the returning officer and the two parties late last night, it was decided to suspend counting until 11am.
This morning, Fianna Fáil requested a simple recount of count 14 - that was quickly completed, and Lynn Boylan's seats were then redistributed.
Barry Andrews said he wanted the recount for clarity about the new 'Brexit seat'.
He explained: "The recount is out of an abundance of caution - we want clarity... we want to make sure a new legislative situation is discharged accurately.
"Nobody wants a cloud hanging over anybody's mandate - so it's better to do it here than to be worrying about it subsequently."
Meanwhile, Sean Kelly has become the first MEP elected to the European Parliament in Ireland South this afternoon following the ninth count.
The Fine Gael MEP will be serving a third term in parliament.

Kelly said: "It's probably the greatest moment in my political career to be returned at the top of the poll by so many people in Ireland South.
"I'm so grateful to everybody on my team and everybody involved."
Independent Mick Wallace is doing the best on transfers and is in a strong position to take a seat, as is Fianna Fáil's Billy Kelleher.
Sinn Féin's Liadh Ni Riada and the Green Party's Grace O'Sullivan are the next best placed.
Fine Gael's Deirdre Clune and Fianna Fáil's Malcolm Byrne also can't be ruled out.
The issue that's arisen in Dublin has sparked rumours of what might happen at Nemo Rangers count centre in Cork.
It's a five-seat constituency - but the last one will only be taken up after Brexit.
The sixth placed candidate's votes aren't expected to be redistributed - with the returning officer hinting it wouldn't be in line with normal practice.
In Midlands North-West, meanwhile, the count is continuing - with independent Luke 'Ming' Flanagan, Sinn Féin's Matt Carthy and Fine Gael's Maria Walsh set for the remaining three seats.
The counting is expected to continue until late tonight at the Royal Theatre Castlebar, and should be finished tomorrow.

Luke 'Ming' Flanagan - the independent MEP from Roscommon - is certain he'll now win a seat.
He observed: "I'll definitely get elected - the only question that's unanswered here is will Brendan Smith get enough to get by Peter Casey? I'm predicting he will.
"The only significant difference that will make to the result is I will reach the quota and end up on about 120,000 votes... if that also happens Matt Carthy should end up very, very close to 94,000 votes."
On the subject of businessman Peter Casey, Flanagan added: "I have opinions on lots of things in this world - fortunately now I don't have to have an opinion on that man, because he's now irrelevant."
Luke Ming Flanagan says he is now certain to retain his seat in Midlands Northwest. He says it’s a relief after Fridays RTE Exit poll had him on 10%.
He also says another election defeat for Peter Casey proves that he is now irrelevant #EE2019 @lukeming @CaseyPeterJ pic.twitter.com/J1rzFBp7sU
